It’s been a jolly time for Amani and her two cubs over the last couple weeks! The family received some new enrichment and the cubs had their 9-week exam. It’s always a joy for us to have healthy, playful cubs!
We gave the cubs their first jolly ball last week. Jolly balls are durable balls that come in various sizes for animals to knock around and chase. The ball is still a little hard for the cubs to manipulate, so they do their best to move it and bat it around. We also placed a large, wooden spool in the yard. It sits on one of the flat sides and sort of acts like a shelf. The cubs are a little too small to get on top of it, but they seem to like it when we put jolly balls on it for them to knock off. Amani seems to be enjoying that, too!
